2011 Fly-Ins

 
May 13-15, 2011.  23 people in 9 airplanes and one car showed up for another one of Jim and Diana Moreno's great flyins. Friday evening everyone meet at the Paso Robles Inn where Jim and Diana hosted a DAF tradition, "the cocktail party", after which we all went in a few different directions for dinner. It came as a surprise to some that not only has the airport restaurant closed, but Michaels in town has also closed. Saturday morning a number of us stopped by the airport museum for the annual wings and cars show. This turned out to be one of the nicer car shows I've been to in a long time, well worth the wait to get in.

Then at noon we all meet at the Pianetta Winery where John Pianetta and his daughter Kaitlin treated us to some wonderful wines and allowed the use of their property for a great BBQ. We couldn't have had better hosts. At the end of the day most of us filled our trunks and headed back to our hotel to redo our W&B for the flight home.

The flight home was pretty uneventful for most because they chose to go VFR under the cloud deck I filed to go over the top at 11K. The only problem was the 50 minutes it took to get a clearance. Live and learn :>(

Jim and Diana, once again you've outdone yourselves, thank you again for a great trip.
